Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

Although this facility's overall grade was not favorable, it earned a very good grade in the area of long-term care. We gave it a B for that category, which is one of our better scores. When facilities receive a grade in this range in long-term care it typically means it has plenty of staff and is a quality place to live on a permanent basis. In addition to considering the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility administered the vaccine to 100 percent of its residents. Vaccines are vital to keeping residents out of the hospital. Lastly, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B-minus

We also awarded this nursing home a grade of B- for our inspections rating. This score is a more impressive than the facility's overall grade. Inspection grades weigh a host of factors included in a nursing home's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we consider is the number and severity of deficiencies. This particular nursing home received 4 deficiencies on its inspection report. Overall, this is still a solid inspection report, but we'd always recommend looking into any deficiencies you find troubling.

Nurse Quality

Grade: D

Turning to the area of nursing care, this facility received a grade of just D in this category. Our nursing grade includes several factors. The most important factor is the quantity of hours nurses spent with patients. This place provided a meager 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident daily. This statistic is significantly below the national average. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in computing our nursing grades. This place fared well in terms of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be reliable indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

The last category we analyzed is short-term care, which proved to be a weak link for this nursing home. We awarded this nursing home a grade of just D in the area of short-term care. Our short-term care grade is often used to judge a facility's rehabilitation services. In order to provide highly scored rehabilitation services, facilities generally need to offer better levels of highly skilled nursing. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, speech therapists and other licensed professionals. Not surprisingly, we found that this nursing home provides far less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. Lastly, we looked at the number of patients who were able to return home from this facility. This nursing home didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 0 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home. This figure was quite a bit off the national average.
